Happy Holidays from all the WECA and T.E.A.C.H. Staff!  Our wish for you this holiday season: 

Revel in the joyfulness that comes your way;
embrace opportunities to gather with friends and family;
find peace in the midst of the hustle and bustle.


End of Semester To-Do's
It’s the end of the semester – Hurray! 
3 things to do to mark the occasion:

  1. Enjoy this season of celebrations!  Whatever and however you celebrate the seasonal holidays, take time to consider what you hold dear this time of year, then share a special memory with someone you love and make a point of passing on a tradition with the next generation in your family.
  2. Bring balance back into your life:  PLAY!  Life gets all out of whack when you’re a student; there’s so much to juggle!  While we always encourage you to strive for balance in your life, consider winter break as your time to PLAY, and do it with gusto!  Figure out what you like to do best or what you’ve been missing, and do it! 
  3. Get those grades in!  Congratulations, you've completed your fall semester courses!  We know it was a lot of hard work so we hope you celebrate your achievements.  Remember to send a copy of your grades to your scholarship counselor.
